Silone Cardtech is a leading supplier of pre-laminated inlays for contactless and dual interface card production. They have delivered over 500 million RF inlays for contactless and dual interface cards and tags to card manufacturers around the world.
With custom-built Cardmatix production lines and test equipment, you know you’re receiving the highest quality inlays from a trusted supplier.
Contactless cards and inlays use TC bonding technology for module attachment; air coil inlays are the industry standard for durability and optimized RF read/write performance.
Their process is compatible with standard and COB (chip on FR4 board) module packaging using thermo-compression bonding.
Dual frequency inlays available: (13.56 MHz and 125 kHz.)
Dual Interface cards provide two interfaces (the chip surface as well as the antenna). So, on a dual interface card the same chip is accessed via the contact or the contactless interface.
For Dual Interface cards, Silone Cardtech is using an optimized and long lasting solution, on which the connections of the antenna to the chip module are directly soldered together.
Thin contactless RF cards are an economical solution for ticketing applications. Durable enough to be reused, thin cards are made with special thin inlays to reduce costs and thickness.
Thinner cards also have the benefit of reducing restocking frequency in transport distribution
ABS Key Fobs
They also offer custom molded tags and fobs come in a wide variety of standard as well as made-to-order shapes.
ABS tags are very durable RF transponders and a popular choice for access control in corporate and campus environments.

JAVA CARD OPERATING SYSTEM
JCOS is based on the Java Card platform and is intended for use in a wide range of smart card solutions.
The Java Card platform is an ideal solution for customers looking for a trusted and versatile card operating system.
Java programming tools provide a fast and reliable way to develop new smart card solutions.
Application development can be done using the GP 2.1.1 Development Kit which is free to download from GlobalPlatform.org.
To ensure the security of JCOS, it has been implemented on Infineon’s SOLIDFLASH™ technology.
JCOS supports four leading encryption algorithms giving developers the tools to meet their security requirements.
JCOS is available for both contactless and dual interface smart cards. This assures maximum flexibility for reader compatibility, especially on public transport and ID card projects which often require a contactless interface.
